The establish is dedicated to treating falcons and owls. The entry ticket is 180 AED (app. 45 Euro), which is quite over priced per my opinion. The procedure they show is rather simple and only two to three places that in the hospital are included in the tour. If only value it from tourism point of view, it is not... More

Spent a few days in Abu Dhabi after the F1 race Nov 14. Not a lot to do so I looked on Trip Advisor and saw the Falcon Hospital, not being a fan of birds I was dubious at first but gave them a call and booked a tour for the same afternoon. What an eye opener, They are very... More

It's fairly secluded and doesn't appear in your usual tourist company itinerary. But definitely MUST MUST go. UAE and falconry are connected in many ways and falcons are part of the tradition and history of this country. The visit to the falcon hospital opened our eyes to falconry. As a start, if you are not following a tour group, you... More

I loved this place. The talk was informative and educational and I learned a lot about falcons. When we were taken into the waiting area for the falcons and allowed to hold and pet the falcons it was an extremely awesome experience! The birds are so majestic and regal and being so close to them and touching them is a... More

Booked this 2hrs tour by the phone. Very nice experience and very good guide. Learned a lot. Never been this close to a falcon before. We got to a couple of treatments and falcon feeding. Recommend this to anyone who is tired of sunbathing all day long in abu dhabi.

This is a great place to visit to learn more about Falconry in the UAE. You start at a little museum then move on to the main building that houses operating and exam rooms that are walled in glass to allow you to see the procedures in progress. There is also a Saluki center on the premises. A very informative... More

I venture to say that most people will not have visited a falcon hospital. This is a unique place as you can leave your falcon to be groomed during the day and drop by after to work to retrieve it. The staff are clearly very attentive and almost fawning over these birds which are brought in by their owners for... More

Not knowing what to expect, my family and I (inclusive of a 6 year old grandson) took a tour of this facility. It was worth the visit, The tour was extremely insightful about these Royal Birds, their various species, their annual tri-seasons. The staff was very helpful, informative and friendly. It is only a 2-2.5 hours tour but is worth... More

This attraction is definitely a must visit. It was a wonderful experience. The guide was most informative and had a good sense of humour. The staff at the hospital were only too willing to answer any questions and we're obviously very proud of the work they carry out. It was very informative and everyone was able to hold one of...
